Market Music was featured in a post on Knight Arts! 
Here's a quote from the article:
 
"From January through June 2012, the Baroque Room is hosting a terrific new program, Market Music: a series of 24 lunchtime concerts, open rehearsals, 'listening club' discussions and jam sessions — all scheduled around the winter and summer St. Paul Farmer’s Market. It’s an ingenious idea, given the venue’s proximity to the popular market, to take advantage of the weekly foot traffic to lure shoppers and passersby with such an attractive, informal point of entry for this rich local music scene."

The April 21 Jam Session has been replaced by a Concert called Duet, Dialogue, Discourse with David Ross, baroque flute and Henry Lebedinsky, harpsichord. Look below under Jam Sessions or on our main page calendar for more details.
